The finance function in transformation
Target group: Financial staff at universities.
The University of Bergen has always been committed to having a modern finance function and good tools to support it.
During the SMW-20, we want to share with the participants how we envision the financial function going forward in connection with the replacement of the ERP systems. How can we, using good tools and support functions, improve the services for the academic activities and provide better management support. In particular, we want to specify how we work to support our researchers in the best possible way when we now have to increase the externally funded part of our activities and in particular secure more EU projects.
We also want to share with you how we work with digitalization and standardization in general at our university and in the sector at large and with a slightly broader perspective than the financial processes.
We look forward to meeting you, exchanging best practise and experience in the field of university finances!
This group anticipates active participation by all, and we would like everybody to be prepared to give a presentation about their university’s best practice.
